Last night, the SD31 vacancy committee met and nearly all of them showed up!!! 164 out of 183 members were present.
There ended up being 10 candidates including a last minute floor nomination who simply wanted a venue to talk about his pet beef.
The voting was done in 3 rounds. The first round eliminated all but the top 4. The second round narrowed the field to two and the third round was the run-off between those two.
After the first round the top four vote getters were:
Ann Ragsdale 56
Pat Steadman 44
Alex Sanchez 31 (I think?)
Jill Conrad 10
Jill announced after that she was dropping out after that so only 3 names were on the 2nd ballot. Those results were:
Steadman in 1st
Ragsdale in 2nd
Sanchez in 3rd
Sorry I did not write down the numbers, I figured someone else would have posted this thread by now.
The final vote between Pat & Ann came was 93 for Pat and 63 for Ann (we lost 8 people during the process).
The meeting itself went exceptionally smoothly, thanks in large part to the planning of the District Chair, Ed Hall, who coordinated with Denver, Adams and the State parties to pull off a very well executed election.
